Hm, am I the only one who thinks it's stupid that clicking a small area
in the middle that does not look any different from the rest of the
folder "line" does not open the folder, but instead pointlessly toggles
the folder icon between "open" and "closed"?

It's counter-intuitive, and no better than the weird Microsoft
interfaces where you're never sure what is an active widget and what is
just a passive informative label or icon, because there are no bevels
or borders.
